4 vs 4 court change drill

Execution

1.When the coach yells, “change” the offensive player will drop the ball. The defense goes to offense and offense goes to defense.

2.When transitioning from offense to defense, the offensive players cannot guard the player that was guarding him.

3.The closest defender to the ball should guard the ball handler.

4.The other 3 defenders should sprint to the rim and cover the low post.

5.This creates a scramble situation where players have to communicate, see ball, find a man, and closeout in relation to the ball.
